Southern Minny

About the Southern Minny

The Southern Minny is a local program designed for athletes 9 - 14 years of age. Teams are formed based on current or projected school. Teams typically meet twice per week. One night per week is reserved for practice, and the 2nd night is for a game.

Southern Minny teams play 12-14 league games and an end-of-year tournament. Games start near the end of April. The majority of games are played within Rochester, but may include minimal travel to surrounding communities.

* NOTE: 12U & 13U teams may be separated into different leagues if number of registered players at each age supports this.
